'Robi' brings digital radio to the iPod

Having a second device isn' ideal, but it's better than nothing.

Roberts Radio

When it rains, it pours. Only a few minutes ago we were taking note of the rising trend for digital radio in MP3 players , and now we've come across something that provides just that for the iPod.

The "Robi" from U.K.-based Roberts Radio obviously isn't ideal because it requires a second device, but it'll do in a pinch if you must have a DAB tuner for the media player. It helps that the Robi can double as a remote for the iPod (thereby helping to justify having a second gadget), but it unfortunately requires wires in this first release. And at more than $100, it might be worth looking at other players that actually have the radio already built in .
